Cocaine Clearance From the Body

I do coke on and off. I would say I do 2 grams, sometimes less, but mostly 3. I also drink when I use coke. I want to ask how long will it take to be out of my urine? Does water help? What else helps to get it out of my urine? Are 5 days good enough to let it out of my body?

Excretion of cocaine out of the body depends upon many factors. These include:
  • The amount of drug taken- The more is the amount, the longer it will take for the body to metabolize it.
  • The mode of administration of the drug- oral, intravenous or nasal.
  • Coke when taken with alcohol produces more effects and takes longer to get excreted.
  • The age, gender and weight of an individual. The drug is mainly metabolized by the liver. Only 1% of it is excreted as such in the urine. The rest is metabolized by the liver and then excreted in urine in the form of a metabolite named benzoylecgonine.

So it would be difficult to say with precision the period of elimination of coke.

A rough estimate is 2- 4 days for one time use. For people who use it quite often, it is 8-12 days.

      Roughly around 8 to 12 days. It would depend upon the general health and metabolism of the individual.

      Cocaine has very adverse effect on the baby. You can easily damage your baby’s nervous system by taking it. It is strongly suggested not to take it throughout pregnancy and lactation.

    I did less then a 0.5 of cocaine between 2 People, and Wednesday 11/13/13 will be 8 days I have not used, and I drink beer or alcohol. Do u think I will be clean by then for Urine Drug Screening?

      Cleaning requires 3 to 5 days for urine screening, if you are a one time user.

      If you are a regular user, the drug may show up in urine for 10 to 15 days.

      Urine is likely to be clean in a period of 10 days. However, if they test your blood or hair, they may show up the drug.

      Cocaine takes 2 to 5 days to vanish from urine samples. You have little time though, keep drinking a lot of water. Avoid alcohol and caffeine, as these chemicals tend to hold back cocaine in the body.

      Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in each of your meals to speed up detoxification.

          19 days are likely to be enough for cleansing.

      If the blood work screens cocaine, it is likely to show the drug. It takes around 5 to 10 days to wash the drug out of the body.

      To wash the drug out of the body, drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and caffeine beverages. Also, keep yourself physically active.

      If this was a one time use, you have good chances of passing the test. Six days would be adequate for drug elimination from the body.

      If this was a one time use, it may take 7 to 10 days to be clear from urine. 10 days more to be out from the blood stream.

      You may pass, provided this was a one time use of the drug and no other chemical/ drug was consumed along with it.

      Usually, the drug takes 3 to 5 days to get excreted from the body, enough to not show up in the drug test. However, consuming alcohol or any other recreational drug with cocaine may considerably retard its excretion.

      Also, if you are a chronic user, the excretion may be much slower. For one time users, the elimination of the drug is pretty fast.

      It is good that you are leaving the drug. However, detoxification takes time. It may take 3 to 6 months, or sometimes even longer. It all depends upon how addicted you were to the drugs. Read more on cocaine excretion.

He is on a oxycodone regiment for severe chronic pain, and they will be testing him for benzoylecgonine. He has a very active metabolism and weigh 155 with a 32 inch waist and is 6 ft. and does not drink alcohol. Is 25 days long enough for him to have a clean urine? He drinks cranberry juice and water throughout the day. Also any suggestions that would help? Thank you!

      25 days should be enough for cleaning. He is already taking all relevant precautions.

      You may inform the authorities about all medications he is taking before the urine test. Sometimes, the results get altered by medical pills. The lab people can take this into account, if they know the medications he is taking.

      Taking cocaine during pregnancy can adversely affect the baby in more than one ways. It may lead to premature labor, low birth weight of the baby, smaller brain size and many other problems.

      Th newborn hair or meconium (first stool) is generally checked to find out whether the mother has taken cocaine. This may show positive results for cocaine in your case.

      Unfortunately, it has already harmed your baby to some extent. It can lead to low birth weight babies and premature labor. The baby may also have some mental problems, like attention deficit disorders. Read here in detail about the effect of cocaine on the baby.

      The only way to detoxify is abstaining from the drug, drinking lot of water. Avoid all stimulants, like tea and coffee, since they tend to hold back the drug in the body.

    Someone I know did 1-1.5 grams of coke on Thursday night and may be .2 Friday around the afternoon for the first time in years. Then around 11 that Friday night took a couple shots not knowing that might have affected the excretion. Did he have enough time in between the cocaine use and the alcohol for it not to severely affect the 2-4 days it usually takes? He has court on Tuesday at 9 a.m so that gives 88 hours from the use to the test.

    Did a key bump of coke last Friday night around 9pm. Was drinking until 3am-ish. Monday to Thursday I went to hot yoga and a workout on Tuesday night. I had a soccer game where I played the whole game and I was non-stop running on Thursday night. I had a drug test (Friday) today which I thought was going to be immediate results but turned out it is being sent to the lab for analysis. I’m assuming they are testing for benzoylecgonine. Before Friday, the last time I did anything was the previous Friday and again is was one key bump. (I know I’m stupid). I’ve been eating normally and drinking water as normal. I had one can of Pepsi on Wednesday and a cup of coffee each morning this week. I also had a beer on Wednesday and a couple of pints Thursday night after soccer. I’m freaking out about my drug test. How long before benzoylecgonine would be out of my system. Do you think I am in the clear?

    I consumed a decent line of cocaine on a Friday and drank alcohol every night after but also consumed water all during day and large amounts 10hrs prior to testing which was 120 hrs after line consumption. 170 5’10. Prior to the night of consumption, I regularly took Q carbo pre-cleansing pills(9) a day, just because I drank liquor daily but not a lot. Love a few shots a day. Questions are? Was it likely the cleansing pills were still flowing through my body and will help? And with what I stated will I have a good chance once urine hits lab after 120hrs?

    I have done about a 0.5 one week ago and a 0.5 a week before that. Today I decided to do a 0.5 of coke again. My final urine test is the following Monday. I get tested weekly and every test is about 5 days from time of usage. I passed every time with flying colors. I usually consume large amounts of water days prior to the test but do no exercise, and I always drink large amounts of water before the actual test. I also don’t use my first piss of the day as the test, and use the middle part of the stream, etc. I feel like I have passed before so I will certainly pass again! Hopefully since it is my last test. I have exactly 4 days to pass, so I know I’m cutting myself close but my test is not a lab test it is a dip 10 panel test, and they do not mind if it is diluted as I tell them I was sick and drank lots of fluids or I exercised with the same excuse. Can you tell me from this information if there is anything I can do to guarantee myself from failing? Or any comments or tips you have for me?

However I had my first real night out with friends last night and since my tolerance for alcohol is so different now I got much more drunk then I meant to and was somehow convinced to do a couple bumps of cocaine. I would say I took 5 small key bumps. I am currently breastfeeding my 2 month old baby. I weigh close to 180lbs and I am 5’10” and 1/2.

      Avoid lactation for a week. During these seven days, detoxify yourself aggressively. Drink plenty of water. Abstain from alcohol. Limit to tea and coffee.

      Take plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

      Don’t take cocaine again. It’s a poison for you and your baby.

    I have just started using cocaine in the past five weeks, spaced out about 1 and a half weeks apart for each use. But, I used on Wednesday this week, then Friday, then Saturday. I decided I’m done with this and am starting NA meetings this upcoming week. I did a whole eight ball in seven hours on Saturday though. I will get tested on Wednesday. If I drink lots of water and workout each day (I am an amateur bodybuilder with not a lot of body fat), do I have a chance of passing the test?

      With that heavy cocaine intake, it’s difficult to predict the results of your drug test.

      Be aggressive about detoxification as you are.

    Friday gone, I had 4 small lines of cocaine, and four punts of beer that night plus two punts Sunday but since Saturday morning I have been drinking loads of water, about 10 liters between now and then. I have a drug test happening any day this week. My urine is clear and I’m going toilet every 20 min. Will I be clear by now or not, worried about my test?

      Keep taking all steps for detoxification.

      It takes 3 to 5 days for the drug to get washed off from your body. It would depend upon the amount of drug taken and whether you are a regular user of the drug or not.

    I took around 0.3mg of cocaine (first time I tried it in many years) last saturday at around 11 P.M. I have been doing the following and will do the following steps:

    Sunday: 3 liters (around 1 gallon of water)
    Monday: 3 liters of water
    Tuesday: I am going to drink 3 liters of water
    Wednesday: 3 liters of water

    On Thursday I am going to take a urine test. That`s 4 1/2 day without taking anything. I had just one cup of coffee yesterday, and one today. I am going to take the same amount until I take the urine sample.

    Do you think I will pass the test? I can postpone it until Friday, or do you think I am fine on Thursday?

    I had some alcohol that day and Subuxone as well.

    Hello. I had smoked crack on Tuesday, early Wednesday along with drinking beer, and forgot I had a saliva test that Wednesday. Well we know I failed. Then I turned around and did it again on Friday, early Saturday along with driving beer, but wasn’t aware that I have failed yet. But now it’s Wednesday again and I got the call that I failed for cocaine. I am gonna ask to take another saliva test. Do you think I will pass this one, since I haven’t done anything since Friday early Saturday?

      Yes, you have a chance to pass the test, if it’s a saliva test. However, you may test positive if it’s a urine test or a blood test.

      Rinse your mouth thoroughly, twice daily, to assure that you have washed off every flake of the drug used.

I was wondering if when I give birth which will be in a couple of day from today but I smoked meth off and on when I was 2 months pregnant then I stopped but when I turned 6 1/2 pregnant, I slipped again. No more than 6 times it was only 20 dollars worth and since then I haven’t touched it since I was wondering if my baby gets tested will she be ok? And will she test positive for meth.

    Okay, I’ll try again. I won’t be specific but one day I smoked 60 dollars of some weak crack in two hours with 2 beers. Haven’t done that in two months. 159 hours later I was told I had to take a pee test dot and reason of suspicion. I didn’t expect it at all. Had several diet cokes a day.

I guess they can still test me again in a week for a hair sample because the have suspicion if I do pass they will keep trying, I hate to shave off all my body hair.

      Since you have been taking the drug on a regular basis every month, some drug is likely to be stored in your fatty tissues, like liver and adipose. This stored drug is released into your blood stream on a constant basis to maintain a certain level of the drug in blood.

      This makes it difficult to assure your drug result.

      However, as you have been aggressive in flushing out the drug, you do have a chance of passing the test.

    My sister in law is due to have her baby in about five weeks. She confided in me that a week ago she did about five or six lines of cocaine. She claims to have not been using throughout her pregnancy. The hospital she will deliver at does blood screens on newborns to check for drug use. Will she and her baby be clean by then? Assuming she has not been using other than the six lines she did a week ago? How long would it take approx for the babies blood to be clean?

    Hey I didn’t know I was pregnant until I was three months. I am a crack user. I usually $300 or more but I didn’t know I was pregnant. About four months I tried hard to quit. I only used once a week about $50. I didn’t know they tested babies or the effects until I researched. I’m now 28 weeks and I just stopped completely a week ago. I’m due March 10. If I didn’t use drugs anymore will my baby test positive for drug use or do I have a chance to get it out his urine before he’s due. I don’t wanna lose my baby. What can I do to clean his system? I’m more concerned about him. Please help.

      To clean his system, eat healthy. Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Vegetarian food is recommended for early detoxification.

      Drink plenty of fluid, be it water or fruit juices. No alcohol, no tea or coffee.

      As your system becomes clean, his body would also cleanse up. Your baby is a part of your body.

      Do not take even a speck of the drug again.

      If you take all precautions, you are likely to be clean by march.

    Hello. I’m a nervous wreck. I took 3-4 hits of marijuana approximately 68 days ago. Before this I hadn’t smoked in 3 years. I also snorted about a half gram of cocaine three months ago and another half gram four months ago. I am a very infrequent user of both marijuana and cocaine and haven’t done either since.

    I had to take a hair follicle test yesterday but they took the hair from my chest. What is the difference in the rate of growth? I know new hairs replace old hairs and they fall out all the time but how often does that occur on the chest? Would it still be a 90 day window? I have heard different opinions on this. Body hair vs head hair. The length of the chest hair is approximately 1 inch. What are my chances of passing the test? I hope I didn’t do enough of each to be above the threshold limit. I think the limit for cocaine and it’s metabolites are 300 pg/mg.

      Body hair fall off quicker as compared to scalp hair.

      48 hours is too little time for cleansing. It usually takes around 3 days at the minimum to wash off the drug.
